Very creative and an attractive design, Is the body of the house hollow?

Yes it is hollow by use of a 1-1/8" Fostner bit.

James I really like the birdhouse and I'm going to try one myself real soon. A friend of mine made a few of them and I think he is hooked. I love to make pens myself so this is something that would be new to me.How long does it take to make one?

It's actually not much different then a two barrel pen. Maybe a little longer in actual turning but basically no assembly required. Just guessing but overall maybe 25% longer. A good turner could probably equal a pen.
